What are snapshots?
You can take snapshots of your servers at any time to store an image of your server in its current state.
|Created||You can take snapshots manually at any time|
|Requirements||Your server must be stopped|
|Maximum number||The maximum number of snapshots you can create is determined by the number of snapshot credits available to your account|
- Create "templates" of servers you plan to create frequently with snapshots. For example, after installing a LAMP stack, you can create a snapshot of the server and then easily create servers that already have LAMP installed on them.
- Create on-the-fly backups before making major changes to your server with snapshots. If something goes wrong, you can restore the server with a snapshot.
